The Eagle's Gift

( 3 )

Overview

Carlos Castaneda takes the reader into the very heart of sorcery, challenging both imagination and reason, shaking the very foundations of our belief in what is "natural" and "logical." His landscape is full of terrors and mysterious forces, as sharply etched as a flash of lightning on the deserts and mountains where don Juan takes him to pursue the sorcerer’s knowledge—the knowledge that it is the Eagle that gives us, at our births, a spark of awareness, that it expects to reclaim at the end of our lives and ...

Overview

Carlos Castaneda takes the reader into the very heart of sorcery, challenging both imagination and reason, shaking the very foundations of our belief in what is "natural" and "logical." His landscape is full of terrors and mysterious forces, as sharply etched as a flash of lightning on the deserts and mountains where don Juan takes him to pursue the sorcerer’s knowledge—the knowledge that it is the Eagle that gives us, at our births, a spark of awareness, that it expects to reclaim at the end of our lives and which the sorcerer, through his discipline, fights to retain. Castaneda describes how don Juan and his party, left thisworld—"the warriors of don Juan’s party had caught me for an eternal instant, before they vanished into the total light, before the Eagle let them go through"—and how he, himself, upon witnessing such a sight, jumped into the abyss.

His legend and his power have grown through two generations, in five astonishing volumes, including The Teachings of Don Juan and A Separate Reality. Now, in this haunting and deeply personal book, Castaneda takes the reader into the very heart of sorcery, challenging both imagination and reason.

    Not really an end, but the beginning of a new Carlos

    This, the sixth book, begins the elucidation of the Toltec art of dreaming. It is some pretty intricate material, ranging from the beginnings of the mastery of awareness to the not-doings of the fearsome Silvio Manuel. Truly an enjoyable and (as always) humorous read.
